The show was wonderful. The meal, we'll, not so much. Unfortunately, the chicken and fish were dry. But, the show sure did make up for the disappointing meal.

We attended a production of Madagascar one Saturday morning and it was phenomenal!! The cast was very energetic, the music was great and the characters were very engaging!! I won't hesitate to go to another play at this theatre.

We had not been to the playhouse in a while but this has been a great show. I am glad we decided to come back. The food was good tonight. I like the system of calling the number to go to the buffet. This show has been great. I love the one liners. "I love when it is cloudy outside... More

Went to see The Producers. Had a wonderful evening. The food is typical buffet food, warm and generic. The entertainment was entertaining! It is an expensive night out but well worth it for the show. Can't wait to see another production!

The dinner was delicious, the show began when the actors took drink orders. The play was Dixie Swim Club, and it was exceptional. Finding the place was a challenge. Parking is hidden behind a square of buildings and entry is from inside the square. Perhaps we are incapable of following directions, but we drove around several times trying to find... More

My sisters and I saw "Tuna Christmas" last weekend. We were delighted with the theater from the moment we walked through the front door. We loved the intimate setting and close proximity to the stage and actors.

Have been to this theater many times. 4 times alone in the past year. Their productions are top notch. All the staff are courteous and professional. Their website clearly shows layout of theater seating. When I've had questions, they were quick to respond.
